The Rev. Jeremy Linneman: “How Your Church Can Respond to the Loneliness Epidemic”

August 15, 2018

Writing for the Gospel Coalition, the Rev. Jeremy Linneman has written an excellent article on How Your Church Can Respond to the Loneliness Epidemic.  As he notes:

Americans are lonelier than ever—even though opportunities for social connection have exponentially increased. Even with affordable phone calls and free email, we’re talking to each other less. Despite the prevalence of car ownership and the low cost of cross-country air travel, we’re spending less time with our families.

After decades of bowling leagues, Americans began bowling alone. Today, in the age of social media, we’re not even bowling.

We’re scrolling alone.

How did social isolation become such a disturbing trend? And how can the church respond to the loneliness epidemic?

If you agree that there have been some major changes in how we connect and that these changes have brought about more isolation, you will find How Your Church Can Respond to the Loneliness Epidemic to be a very worthwhile read.
